What a priceless little 9/11 tribute!

Given your obvious propensity for jingoistic cliches, I looked through your archives and I couldn't find any similar tributes for equally, if not more significant calendar dates. Here's a few that immediately come to mind:

1. Sunday, 15-Apr-07: Holocaust Rememberance Day: Dedicated to remembering the 6,000,000+ Jews exterminated during WWII.

2. 6-August: 66,000 dead, 69,000 injured at Hiroshima.

3. 9-August: 39,000 dead, 25,000 injured at Nagasaki

4. 17-September: 23,000 casualties at Antietam in 1862.

5. 7-December: 2,333 killed, 1139 injured at Pearl Harbor.

The list could go on forever. But, I suppose wasting time on tributes to those events don't make GoogleCount++, do they?

Re: Hiroshima, Nagasaki.

I'm reminded of a protester who said "Two bombs, too many".

To which a physicist replied - "one bomb not enough".

I understand patriotism is unfashionable these days. I have often bucked the trend. Just another instance.

As to google. I find that articles on pornography attract a crowd. Especially pornography in the Islamic world.

"Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about." - M. Twain.

And exactly which physicist are you referring to? Certainly none from this group of Manhattan Project scientists and engineers led by Leo Szilard who petitioned Truman on July 17th, 1945 urging him not to use atomic weapons:

Patrio-fascists like you would classify all these folks as "unpatriotic"? Or mabye they're just a bunch of pussies!!

Here's great collection of bumper stickers for you:
